A large hot pink flower sits on the banks of the Thames at Pimlico. The fibreglass flower is the work of artist Ana Azarev as part of her campaign titled Love and Peace.
Her ambitious project aims to install one of her large bright flowers in cities throughout the world. She believes that art and beauty will convince nations to "foster mutual appreciation and hope". Perhaps it is no accident that the offices of MI5 are directly across the river and the new American Embassy just up the road.
